It's Okay To Be 25+, Single, And Unclear With Your Goals
Before I make you feel better about being 25+ and single, how many of you have fallen prey to digital media and the oh-so-cool updates by your friends and family? *secretly raising my hand. It's okay! Well, it's high time to ditch them! It's pretty annoying to see people who are our juniors, or of the same year born, having one hell of a gala time with either their loved ones or with their friends. Check-ins to exotic places, weekends at amazing nearby getaways, or having a grand wedding at splendid locations; we are just done with all this! One can save himself from GoT spoilers, but not with people who are annoying us with their cool life all over the social media.
The moment we start feeling better about ourselves, be it at work or at home, social media posts of these people, who are having a helluva personal life make us sulk every night. But why to compare our lives with others? They might be having a good time with others, but come on, yours is not that bad! What if you are 25 or plus, still single, and yet to figure out what you want from life? It's perfectly alright!
If you are going through the above-mentioned trivia, then, take a deep breath, and calm all your senses. Do not over think about others' lives, and, STOP COMPARING YOURSELVES! You are good the way you are! We have jotted down a few points why being in such a state is still good. Take a look:
You Have A Lot Of Me Time:
Ignore everything! Your friends might have met their soulmate, but you still have time to do what you've always desired. May be a sport you always wished to play? Or, go on a solo trip? This world is your canvas, paint it the way you wish it to be!
Trust me, getting married ain't a cake walk! With this tag, a honeymoon on an exotic location, and pre-post wedding shoots, there comes a packaged deal of RESPONSIBILITIES. Who likes them? Ugh... Doesn't it feel good that you are away from anything such that will blow your mind in the near future? Enjoy your freedom.
No matter how much these people flaunt their oh-so-amazing social status, they do have a fam-jam to take care of. All the singles just have two old parents, who have given up on them, and all they want is to spend some time with their kids. Get going! The clock is ticking.
Weekends Are Sorted:
Here comes your trump card. You don't have to attend innumerable family functions. All you can to do on a weekend is Netflix and chill in your own style! ;)
Goals Are Not Time-Bound:
You are done with your MBA and all the world jazz you had to do as a student. The only focus you had was a job and may be you have even achieved that one! It's time to experiment with your career and make mistakes as many as you wish to. Remember? No responsibilities? Exactly! Take this one as an advantage and try everything you wished to do in your career. You never know you might get that one job you've always desired for!
Isn't that simply cool?
We all have our own life the way we have seen it a few years back. May be not a perfect one, but a good one! And, it's not a case of sour grapes. Everyone needs time to reach where they see their selves later. All you need is a lot of patience and some hard work.
All the best!
Leave all your worries, and don't forget to smile. :)
